Shouldn't be too much harder than on normal if you use the same method as stated there.

Pick Astana if you to get this the easiest way possible. Unless you are really good at the time rials I'd suggest using the D-PAD to deselect your best riders in the general classification for them, that way you won't lose too much time. Contador should be the rider you aim for the overall best time with, he's the best in the mountains and should get you this achievement without too much of a struggle.

On the mountain stages a way to get a big gap on the rest is to attack before the last mountain, preferably on the second last mountain if it is close to the last one. You will get a nice gap if you put your effort to 100%. They will probably catch up a little on the final climb, but you should make it to the finish line. Just in case your rider somehow cracks. Reload the game without saving and experiment with the effort, this shouldn't happen though unless you attack way too early. I suggest only attacking if the last 2 climbs are within the last 60 kilometers.

If you feel you're not gaining enough time or any time at all you could always reload your save and experiment on some of the medium mountain stages, but it's perfectly doable without attacking on any of those.

Doing this with Contador should also get you the White Jersey achievement.
